TV back on in Wonder Valley

Edward Abbey, with his own
brand of DIY TV repair.
Wonder Valley belongs to County Service Area 70 TV-4. Check your tax property tax bill. You ll see a $5.00 charge for television service. I hear there used to be a TV club in Wonder Valley - everyone chipped in $5. On July 11, 1995 CSA 70 TV-4 was formed.

People had some problems this week getting the channels they were supposed to so I called Special Districts and they sent someone out to the television tower on Pinto Mountain to install a new receiver. It is supposed to have fixed the problem.

If you have questions about how to receive digital television signals at your house, or you want to report problems, call (760) 367-1833, or you can always contact me at teresa.sitz@gmail.com.

If you have a TV or monitor that you need to get rid of, please hold onto it until we have a free e-waste event - usually around May. TVs and monitors contain highly toxic chemicals that can damage the environment.

Here are some links that may help if you're having trouble with your reception.
